Don’t. Touch. The. Katsu (Picture: Wagamama)

Sometimes it’s nice to live the sort of life where you have absolutely no idea how many calories are in your signature dish from your favourite restaurant – and sometimes that dish is the exact reason you can’t fit into your jeans. Oh.

We’ve had a good hard look at some of the UK’s top restaurant menus and analysed the nutritional info, just so, y’know, you’re clued up before you head out for food.

From Pizza Express to Nando’s, here’s the most calorific dishes you could order for dinner tonight…

1. Wagamama

Chicken Katsu Curry – 1,149 calories

Uh huh, the nation’s favourite Wagamama dish comes in at more than half a woman’s daily recommended calories. Smooth, real smooth.

2. Prezzo

Tre Gusti pizza (large) – 1,362 calories

There’s nothing that sounds yummier than chicken, bacon and sausage on one pizza, but those cals are quite something, no?

3. Starbucks

Signature hot chocolate with cream (Venti) – 690 calories

Don’t look at the white chocolate mocha either. Both of these dreamy hot drinks have more calories than a Big Mac (490 cals) in. FFS.

4. Pret A Manger

Swedish Meatball Hot Wrap – 628 calories

Pret’s hot sandwich selection all come in at over 550 calories, and let’s face it, you’re going to need a bag of crisps to go with them really aren’t you? Eek.

5. YO! Sushi

Chicken Katsu Curry – 519 calories

Bear in mind that YO! Sushi’s dishes are supposed to be eaten as more of a tapas style – lots of small plates, which means this ‘small’ plate will be teamed with several others.

6. Pizza Express

Sloppy Giuseppe pizza (normal) – 922 calories

Not the Giuseppe! How could he be this calorie-ridden? Maybe don’t look at the Pollo Pesto pasta either, he has a charming 922 calories per portion.

7. Nando’s

Half chicken and chips (regular) – 1,088 calories

There’s something that feels surprisingly healthy about Nando’s, it’s just not hidden in the half chicken which packs a hefty 623 calories on its own without sides.

8. Harvester

Mixed Grill – 1,691 calories

Erm. Just yeah. Very good.

9. TGI Friday’s

Bleu Stacked Burger – 1,530 calories

Even some of the salads at TGIF weigh in at over 800 calories. So maybe just plan a 7,346 hour gym trip afterwards.

But why TGI, why do you tease me with such bad food? (Picture: Instagram)

10. ASK

Pollo Milanese with chips – 1,149

Chicken and chips? Apparently not so good for you. Maybe steer clear of the pork belly too, which is only four calories behind. Yikes.
